Gotta love that look.... hmmm you don't have mice...

It's the, "didn't I call room service for mice.... why are you here empty handed".. look

I think Raptor put it in pic in another thread.

Wanted to get the scale effect like Raptor used in his new pictures.

Nice snake, you got some very nice figure 8 saddle spots. It's always fun see in the markings on other peoples snakes.

One question......have had your snake sexed?????

ssgdukes 01-25-2008 06:43 PM

No I haven't had him offically sexed but the pet shop said that he is a boy. I want to have him sexed but I just can't bare the thought of having someone either popping him or sticking rods down his vent.......ouch :shock:

Anyway thanks and I will try to post some better pictures once I pry the camera from my wife.

raptor667 01-25-2008 11:11 PM

only asked about the sex cause your snake has a small tail...one of the ways you can get a clue to a snakes sex is the tail length. Long tail---male snake. short tail -- female snake....

It's just speculation as there is only 1 way to be sure and as you said it doesn't sound fun.....lol

ssgdukes 01-26-2008 04:42 AM

Thats a good point....he does have a short tail. Oh well I guess one of these days I will get him sexed so I can find out for sure. Well as I promised here are some more pictures of Big Hurt.

Me and Hurt at bath time.

This is the progression of him leaving his hide to come out and play for the night. As you can see I am in need for a new enclosure because he is literally the same lenght of it.

Looks like a good setup for him though.
Might want to look into a better thermometer and hygrometer though, does little round ones aren't very accurate.
You can run buy wal-mart and pick up a digital that tells both for a little over 10 bucks. It might not say "reptile" on it but in this hobby its cheaper to go outside the box sometimes.

(Snakes, Their Care and Keeping- Lenny Flank, Jr.): 'As a general rule of thumb, a snake's cage should be about two-thirds as long as the snake, and about half as wide as the snake's length.' Looks like you're good. Looks like my snake needs a wider enclosure.. :roll: oh well... I'll build a 'house' for Saffron, and use the 100 gallon aquarium for... hmmm.. a colubrid colony! :twisted:
